The Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) have eliminated scores of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists and impounded large quantities of their logistic supplies in Kirawa, on the Nigeria and Cameroon borders.
In a statement on Monday by Col. Muhammad Dole, the Chief of Military Public Information for MNJTF in N’Djamena Chad, said the operation was conducted by the troops of sector 1 Cameroon.
Mr Dole reported that the troops conducted the operation in the Vretet-Zamga-Ngoshe triangle, where several Boko Haram/ISWAP insurgents were neutralised, while many fled with gunshot wounds.
According to him, a large quantity of materials and assorted foodstuff were recovered during the operation.
He said items recovered include one AK47 rifle and Magazine, 21 bicycles, 01 BHT uniform, several ammunition of the 7.62 MM special variant, 39 bags millet and two bags of beans.
Dole said that an intelligence analysis indicated that the items were being smuggled from the borders to Sambisa forest.
“It’s believed the terrorists are stock piling materials for the incoming month of Ramadan,” Dole said.
“Further exploitation of the engagement areas showed traces of blood, evidence of Boko Haram/ISWAP criminals removing corpses of their dead colleagues while two corpses of Boko Haram criminals were discovered,” he added.
